    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People don't like to cooperate, they like to challenge. Sometimes it is good, sometimes it influence the mood of cooperation.

    Cons

    Very customer-focused, always try to create new things.

    Advice to Management

    More down to earth and watch what employers have done.

    Former Employee - Amazon Fresh Associate in Bellevue, WA

    I worked at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Lots of time off

    Cons

    Forced to work in a 30 degree refrigerator
    Mind numbingly tedious tasks
    Your work productivity is determined by a rate which is over simplified.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better gloves to workers so their hands aren't freezing cold. The hand warmers are decent but not enough.
    Switch employees between warm and cold locations more frequently.

    Four - ten work schedule

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Let others get trained in other areas of work.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, especially for an entry level position.

    Pay is above average for the kind of job it is.

    Cons

    Lots of hard work can put some strain on your feet even with comfortable shoes.

    Some problems are ignored until escalated past the AMs.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely needs more training for newcomers - it's a lot to take in for the first few days.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Rewarding, in a very immediate, direct sense: working in the .com division, there is always the knowledge that you've given something their product on time and in good condition. If you've ever ordered something on Amazon.com, you know how nice that is, and given the sheer number of packages we ship out in one day (or even one shift), you're making a lot of people happy.

    Cons

    Relentless, non-stop work: not always difficult or demanding (although it sometimes is), but there is little "down-time" as there might usually be in other jobs. If you're not on breaks or lunch, you're working hard. Not necessarily a bad thing, if you like that, or can adapt to it.

    There are also frequent, minor (but not always) changes to the processes we use at the FC, all in the name of increasing efficiency or reducing metaphorical waste, but happen with little warning pretty frequently, and constantly adjusting how you work and what you know makes you good at your job can get kinda exhausting, physically and mentally.

    Advice to Management

    Ease back on expected rate a bit, especially when a new process has been implemented, because it will take time to adapt, and during that time, our productivity will naturally be a bit lower.
